Organising interest classes about rugby to foster the holistic development of children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

 

The venture aims to let children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) learn how to work out plans and strategies through playing rugby. Children with ADHD can enhance their self-control and gain positive experiences through social interaction. The venture also provides parents with a platform to better understand ADHD. Parents can participate in sports together with their children to foster the holistic development of their children and family harmony.

A suitable learning method and acceptance and appreciation from others are important for children with ADHD. Therefore, the venture plans to organise interest classes for children with ADHD, share practical information on parenting, and provide a communication platform for parents to release their pressure in caregiving.
